Ever struggled with replacing a sky? Now it’s much easier.
When grading or doing VFX and you want to make a boring sky look better, it used to take time and a fair amount of effort to make it look right.
Not to mention the time to find a stock footage element to use as the new sky.
Now it’s just a built in effect that — with a little practice — can replace a sky in no time!
